The fire mountains
Between 1730 and 1736 almost 30 volcanos erupted and as a result, 11 villages were destroyed. The Violent explosions left a mysterious and enchanting landscape with colorful rock formations, dry and copper-colored sand.
With a quarter of the island covered extensively by magma and ashes, the surrounding ground began to resemble the rugged surface of the moon. Today, under all the drought, the magma at Timanfaya is still active 4-6 feet below the surface.
In order to prevent erosion and to maintain the post-eruption state of the area, only organized guided tours by bus are allowed. At the top of the mountain, there is a restaurant called El Diablo, a shop and an area with information about the park.
